Description

This tour will enchant both adults and children by making them discover a breath-taking castle and garden.

With its richness, complexity and power to surprise, the magnificent castle of Fontainebleau sums up the history of France. It has been the sovereign’s residence for eight centuries. Capé- tiens, Valois, Bourbons, Bonaparte and Orléans, have lived within these walls. From Francis I (the castle was his favorite residence) to Napoleon III, each sovereign left a unique mark in the structure and on its grounds.

The park, created during the reign of Henry IV, foreshadowed the Grand Canal of Versailles to be created sixty years later. You will be able to walk through the forest, which was a magnificent hunting ground at ancient times, and to stop at the typical village of Barbizon, which inspired landscape painters such as Corot and Millet. The village has kept its charming appeal with houses made of stone and ivy, and the gardens full of roses. It definitely remains the “village of Painters”.

I would use Deluxe again, but our driver who took us to the Lisbon airport, left us in the wrong terminal. It took a while to get our bearings once we realized the error.

Our driver/tour guide was the perfect amount of history and story telling. He knew just what we needed to see and how much time to spend in each activity.
